I've been saving the line "Kentucky is bluegrass and Bruce Pearl is the lawnmower" all year, but with Wednesday's loss at Ole Miss and Chris Lofton still sidelined, an upset in Lexington seems less likely than ever.

It's bad enough that Rupp is an impossible place to play for visiting teams, but these days every SEC gym is daunting just because it's nearly unthinkable to win on the road in this league. Still, there is hope. This isn't the Kentucky of old. These 'Cats have struggled to find a foothold just like everybody else in the war of attrition known as SEC basketball.

So, we'll be watching and hoping for, but probably not expecting, an upset. Maybe the Blender and the Tennessee Youth Movement will provide just enough in the Discombobulator's absence.

Heck, it's worth watching just to see if Pearl smashes anything.
